Its a regression of Firefox Bewertet mit 4 von 5 Sternen

Launchy was an extremely useful add-on of Firefox . I used it for years but it does not work anymore with Firefox ESR 45.2.0.
How can I fix it? Or should I downgrade Firefox?

left click? Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternen

I still don't understand how to use Launchy with normal left click, not right click+context menu, if there is only one application defined for that action (open html link). Using right click + Launchy + selecting the application from the context menu is not too user friendy.
It works, except for that issue, very well.

It was a good extension. Too bad it does more walking ... Instead I found "Open With" which does the same job

Needs Firefox 45 support Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternen

5 stars for when it worked. 1 star now because it no longer works in Firefox ver 45. I found this a very useful add-on and hope someone updates it.

RIP Launchy :( Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

It was a great extension while it worked. With a single click, you could redirect a page or pictures to other programs on your computer. Unfortunately, hasn't been updated in years and probably never will.

Not very user friendly Bewertet mit 2 von 5 Sternen

No options to select in the GUI. Needs to be improved in all ways.

It's a shame, but this extension doesn't work any more. :(

Launchy - please pimp it to the function of firefox-addon selection linkS Bewertet mit 4 von 5 Sternen

Great addon!
I would love to considerably contribute, if you could enlarge the function of LAUNCHY in the way the firefox addon "selection links" is functioning. it allows to "encircle" several links and let them all open with one single click...

How to fix (Part 2) Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Follow the instructions provided by Paul Osborne ( (thanks for that), but additionally replace all occurrences of '' with 'gContextMenu.linkURL' in main.js (Line 216, 381 and 421). This will fix the 'Permission denied' error.

It's now working for me with TB 17.0.2.

How to fix it! Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

This is still one of my favourite extensions, but it is starting to lose compatability. I have just submitted a fix to a bug that stops it creating temporary files for other software to use (on Windows), so I hope it will get an update. In the meantime, if you're determined to get it to work I recommend doing this:

Download from the 'Add to Firefox' link.
Rename it to
Extract the contents of
In the contents folder, extract the contents of launchy.jar (I used IZArc for this).
Go into the 'contents' folder and open main.js.

Change line 470 from:

persist.saveURI(URI, null, null, null, null, f);


var privacy = PrivateBrowsingUtils.privacyContextFromWindow(window);
persist.saveURI(URI, null, null, null, null, f, privacy);

Recompress 'contents', 'locale' and 'skin' to a new launchy.jar (I used IZArc again) and delete these 3 folders.
Replace the original launchy.jar with the new one.
Recompress it all to, being careful to keep the same folder structure.
To check the folder structure, open and you should see the 'chrome' folder directly inside (and more). Directly inside 'chrome' should be launchy.jar and nothing else. Directly inside launchy.jar should be the 'contents', 'locale' and 'skin' folders.
Rename the new zip file to and drop it back into your extensions folder (or drag and drop it on an open Firefox window to install).
Give it 5 stars or donate something!

It still does not detect all compatible software on Windows x64, but you can use launchy.xml for this, see:

This hasn't worked for ages and yet it is still being shown as 'compatible' with current versions of TB. Obviously the developer doesn't care (or use the add-on himself). There really should be a 'bomb' rating and the absolute worst add-ons removed.

last worked with seamonkey 2.0.11+linux-32-bit Bewertet mit 1 von 5 Sternen

I checked the bug finder, there are dozens, all marked 'new'. So I decided not to add yet another.

Just upgraded to Mint 14, 64-bit, seamonkey 2.16.2, and launchy does nothing there. Oh well, it was nice to have while it ran.

Hope the dev is still alive somewhere, and returns to action....when it runs, it's a 4+ out of 5 stars.
